GeoGebra

Creating a simple interactive using GeoGebra

While preparing to share with some fellow teachers in Singapore about the use of GeoGebra in Physics, I came up with a set of simple instructions to create an interactive, while introducing tools such as sliders, checkboxes (along with boolean values) and input boxes. Download it here.

You should be able to follow the instructions in the pdf document above and make a simple interactive applet yourself too. The outcome of the interactive applet will be like this:

Using Loom and GeoGebra to explain a tutorial question

It’s Day 1 of the full home-based learning month in Singapore! As teachers all over Singapore scramble to understand the use of the myriad EdTech tools, I have finally come to settle on a few:

  1. Google Meet to do video conferencing
  2. Google Classroom for assignment that requires marking
  3. Student Learning Space for students’ self-directed learning, collaborative discussion and formative assessment.
  4. Loom for lecture recording
  5. GeoGebra for visualisation

The following is a video that was created using Loom to explain a question on why tension in a rope on which a weight is balanced increases when the rope straightens.
